Why are we spending more and getting less?
Proof We Are Better Together
Do you know that even though we spend more on health in the U.S., we have worse health outcomes and less access to care than other wealthy countries?
Are you aware that Ohio ranks 46 of 50 states on health value – meaning Ohioans spend more but are less healthy compared to most other states?
And, what about our community – the place we call home?
- One in two children living in the City of Cincinnati live in poverty
- Black babies are dying at more than three times the rate of white babies
- The rate of opioid-related overdose deaths is one of the highest in the country
- Public transportation and affordable housing are lacking
I believe we can do better. We must do better – as a country, state and Greater Cincinnati community.

TriHealth kicks off construction on new Good Samaritan OB-GYN Center
TriHealth’s much-anticipated construction on the new OB-GYN Center at Good Samaritan began early this month and kicked off with a groundbreaking ceremony.
Thanks to funding from bi3 and CommonSpirit Health, Good Samaritan Hospital is expanding its OB-GYN teams and bringing community partners onsite to connect each patient with a consistent care team and the resources. This new space will help the hospital serve patients holistically and address social barriers to health, which in turn will lead to overall wellness for moms and their babies.
